Overview

Working with A-list songwriter-producers like JR Rotem, Dr. Luke, Tim James & Antonina Armato, Vanessa took unexpected turns on the new album. "This time I did what I wanted to do," she says. "I always had a knack for a more soulful, jazzy sound, so right off the bat I wanted to kind of let loose, and come up with a sound no one has heard from me before." She's not exaggerating. For those familiar with her sweet-toned performances from the High School Musical films – which catapulted her to superstardom – or her 2006 debut CD, V, Vanessa has some gritty surprises in store Vanessa’s first single and video, “Sneakernight,” is both fun and funky, and may end up as one of the CD’s most enduring hits. Says Vanessa, “Dancing in sneakers makes it all the better. People haven’t been able to see that side of me. I can kick butt!”

Vanessa's voice really comes through in this album, especially in Last Night and Gone With The Wind. This girl will really go places once she leaves behind the restraints of Hollywood Records, who doesn't seem to know she exists. They are making a big mistake in ignoring this talented singer. I expect her singing career to soar once she signs with a new record label.

For almost 2 weeks since its release, I have been playing Vanessa Hudgens' 2nd album, Identified! It is very catchy all the way through. Better than her debut, which didn't pull me in as much. Sneakernight is the current hit, but Amazed with Lil' Mama outdoes it by miles! And I also like Party On the Moon, Cross Your Mind, Gone With the Wind, Hook It Up, Don't Ask Why and others. Vanessa has a solid album with some hooky and catchy choruses. I like how she stretched it up with newer producers to update her sound. The ballads sound more mature and the uptempo songs are so funky. And Vanessa sounds better vocally here than she is on local TV. The album has a certain slickness to it but it's the right kind of album to play in the summer.

This new album has a different tune/sound in each song no song is the same.So you hear varities of vanessas awesome voice. Sneakernight wasnt a hit to me but i love amazed,idenitfied,first bad habit,hook it up,papercut, basically all the other songs. my all time favorite so far is Amazed because vanessa and lil mama have two different voices and in this song it comes together and should be her next single because i know it will be a #1 hit!

Vannessa is a beautifully talented girl that puts alot of rymthum and beat into her music. Thaty's why i luv her sooooooooooo much! She's such a great actress and singer.

Seriously, what happened to the Vanessa we all know and love? She should stop trying to be someone she's not. She can really only sing High School Musical songs. I believe she can sing, just stuff she's good at, not these stupid songs. Her songs are repetative and weird, don't waste your money on something like this.
